SW, ZI and I were on a walk, taking in the views yielded by the Southern RIdges one blazing hot afternoon. We managed to get up the hill via the Marang Trail (warning, stairs) -which starts right opposite Vivocity and gets you up to the Jewel Box Bar- in less than 10 minutes. At 5pm, the sun was exactly above the trees and aligned with the Henderson Wave Bridge. We would advise that you start the hike at 5 or 5.30pm, not at 4.30pm. Unless you want a sun tan.
Our walk ended at the Alexandra arch. As always, we hop on the first bus that takes us back to Vivocity.
It was at this bus stop that I observed the McDonald’s advertisement.
What on earth is McDonald’s thinking? So a Singapura Feast consists of a double Rendang beef burger, Curry Shaker fries, rose McFizz and durian McFlurry? Deliciously local it shouts. Hilarious. Okay so there’s something for those with tastes for malay, indian spices… I’m not sure about the rose fizzy and even less sure about the durian dessert… Please read the fine print.
It says durian “flavored”. The real thing can’t be that cheap and still be good eh? Well, McD’s is not known for it’s healthy nor nutritious food, and this is possibly the least healthy of the lot. Every item is artificially flavored.
I think it was a marketing decision for the then upcoming Hari Raya festivities which coincided with Singapore’s National Day.
